Overview

Hi, I’m Erika. I craft thorough, reader-friendly indexes that help sell books.

With more than 900 published print and digital indexes, I can create an index that sets your book apart from the competition. While my specialty is computer technology, my portfolio includes topics from political science to sports. Large or small, your project receives the same meticulous attention and commitment to quality.

Does your project need an expedited schedule? I’ll work with you to meet all project demands. Your completed index is delivered on or ahead of deadline every time, ensuring that you hold your production schedule. As a member of the American Society for Indexing, I stay current with changes in the industry. I love what I do and strive to make each project its best.

Imprints I’ve worked with include Addison-Wesley, ASCE, Cisco Press, FT Press, Harvard Business Review Press, Harvard University Press, Haymarket Books, IBM Press, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, McGraw-Hill, MIT Press, Pearson Business, Prentice Hall Professional, Que Publishing, Routledge, Sams Publishing, VMware Press, and Wharton School Publishing.

My qualifications include a BA in linguistics, graduate work in TESOL, and 20 years as an in-house indexer for Pearson’s technology and business imprints. Through a series of corporate acquisitions, I gained experience working for three major publishers—Macmillan Computer Publishing, Simon & Schuster, and Pearson—without ever leaving my desk.

Indexer

Self-employed
March, 2016 – Present (over 3 years)

I write print and digital indexes that help sell books. While my specialty is computer science and technology, my portfolio includes topics from political science to sports.

Whether your workflow is print, digital, or XML-based, I have the skills and flexibility to adapt to your production needs. As a member of the American Society for Indexing, I stay current with changes in the industry. I love what I do and strive to make each project its best.

Indexer

Pearson
July, 1998 – February, 2016 (over 17 years)

As part of a fast-paced editorial team, I contributed indexes to more than 650 print and digital titles for Pearson's technology and business imprints, helping to generate millions in revenue. I was entrusted with multiple high-profile releases, including 10 editions of Upgrading and Repairing PCs, one of Que’s two 2M+ lifetime unit sellers. I regularly collaborated with editors, vendors, and page compositors on 6 to 10 concurrent assignments to maintain aggressive production schedules.

In an industry that is constantly changing, I helped to deliver innovative products by expanding my indexing skillset to include XML-based production, digital-first projects, and ebook indexes. I also reviewed digital publications for quality and accuracy prior to release.

Proofreader/Indexer

Macmillan Computer Publishing
August, 1994 – July, 1998 (almost 4 years)

During my time at Macmillan, I contributed to more than 100 titles in Macmillan's technology and general reference imprints while managing up to eight projects concurrently. I was retained through multiple reorganizations as Macmillan Computer Publishing was acquired by Simon & Schuster, Viacom, and ultimately by Pearson.
